WARNING: FOOD ARTISTE AT WORK - BEST STAY AWAY!!

I am barely awake - might go and lie on the sofa for another hour...

Got home at 6.20am this morning, and realised I'd have to stay up for the postman as I was waiting on a couple of items which I knew had been despatched. As my parents are AWOL there would be noone about to answer the door for me and I wouldn't hear the bell in the loft...

So I dragged my duvet downstairs to the living room and have slept on the sofa. Postman No1 brought parcel no1 at 8.30am, after I had been asleep an hour and a half-ish. Postman No2 brought parcel no2 at 10.30am... Each time I was woken by the bell and crawled out of the duvet/fell off the sofa* to go and answer... My sister and Steve turned up at 12.30 to print something in the room behind me and have just left again...

I've had five and a half hours sleep with two interruptions... I can't really go back to sleep as I have a cake to create. I'm not doing the baking of cake bit - I've bought a coconut spong and a chocolate spong and am going to stick a choc layer of that one in the middle of the other and eat the spare (artist priviledge), then I'm going to stick a marzipan layer, then a white icing layer, paint the sides red, add strawberry 'lances' round the sides at intervals and a black ring at top and bottom with silver balls in...

What is it supposed to be?? An approximation of a drum... I hope it's convincing. I'm going to dent the top to bits as well and leave a couple of breadsticks on top for drumsticks...

Edit: Have used chupa chups lollies instead!

But I won't have time to go in town to go shopping (will do that in the morning before overtime 2-6pm then meeting Mike and off to the pub) - his Zildjian pint glass has arrived anyway - as I have to do this cake, and then am off to a fortieth birthday party at theatre in the evening, then off to see some Jazz band, then off to Black Catz.

I'd better bugger off and get creating...
(when I wake up - coffee, fag and croissant!)

................................

* Its a nice long big sofa - long enough to sleep stretched properly, but lists at a funny roll-back angle. I actually slept fairly comfortably with lots of cushions down one end!!

...............................

Btw, I've tried to tidy up my fiends list - basically remove ones who don't have me as a fiend anymore... If I've deleted a name I shouldn't have pwease let me know?:)
